Standing beside Pierre in front of the cooler for a few moments, his eyes dancing over the brightly-colored containers below, the gentleman finally looked over at him and pointed toward row after row of what was unmistakably Garden Fresh's all-natural fresh salsa, with its distinctive packaging and riotous display of color proclaiming a wide range of … [Read more...]
